“Doolin Ferry trip to Aran Islands”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2008

I used Aran Islands ferry and Cliffs of Moher cruises in June of last year. We travelled to Inis Oirr, and I was able to book that and the cliffs of moher cruise all for the same day online. It was really a perfect day. We made reservations by sending in an email request and then made a secure booking directly online. Inis Oirr is fantastic. It was a really warm day and the beach was just beautiful. We had a backpack with picnic food and rented bikes. It really was a great trip, and the cliffs-of-moher-cruises staff were very friendly. Also, it is a shorter journey then going by Galway, and you also get to visit Doolin, another GREAT spot.

“Fun Ferry Ride”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2007

We took the Doolin Ferry over to the smallest Aran Island in late September, 2007. It is much smaller and slower than the ferries from Galway, but that is part of the charm. If the tide is low as it was when we went over, you may have to transfer to the ferry in a smaller boat with life vests and all. Would not recommend it for frail and elderly, but sure adds a little spice to the trip.
